Real may concede on path to victory over Madrid neighbours

Gatafe can trouble top defences

Cristiano Ronaldo has a great goalscoring record against Getafe

La Liga
Kick-off 3.15pm Saturday

Real Madrid can make it lucky 13 with yet another away win, though personnel changes could ensure Getafe get on the scoresheet at the Alfonso Perez Stadium.

Real head just outside the capital having won their last 12 away games in the Primera Liga.

It's an extraordinary record and one they can extend against a side who they are, predictably enough, strong against.

Real have won 14 of the last 15 meetings against their neighbours with the last seven producing an aggregate scoreline of 30-6 in favour of Los Blancos.

The bet looks to be Real to win and both teams to score.

Real aren't at full strength with Gareth Bale injured and it looks as though Keilor Navas will rest a strain to ensure he's fit for Tuesday's Champions League showdown against Tottenham.

That will give Getafe a lift, and having scored in each of their last five matches – which includes putting four past Villarreal – they have the self-belief to know they can trouble the top defences.

Also, of Real's 12 away wins in a row, only three have been to nil.

Real, of course, believe they can batter anyone and they've bounced back well from that shock loss to Betis with a couple of domestic successes and a sumptuous 3-1 win in Dortmund.

Cristiano Ronaldo, 12-5 to open the scoring, has bagged an incredible 20 goals against Getafe, a sequence which includes three hat-tricks.
